✨✧ CosViva Broma (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fluide (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really cool group from the Belgian scene of the 70s – one who work here with production from Marc Moulin, and an electronic sound that's very much like his own work with the group Placebo! The style here is less jazz-based than Marc's, but equally full of great keyboards – as well as flute, guitar, bass clarinet, and other instrumentation – often altered with devices in ways that abstract the elements, but keep things pretty darn tuneful throughout! There's some vocals on the record, but the instrumentation – especially the keyboards – is key – and titles include "In Lulu", "Ixelles", "L'Idiot Leon", "Perhaps Next Record", and "Viva Boma".

Leathercoated MindsTrip Down The Sunset Strip (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Viva/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
A lost gem from the LA scene of the 60s – a set that was originally cast as an exploitation of the heady Sunset Strip scene, but which actually features a fair bit of excellent work by the young JJ Cale! Cale arranged and produced the set, and wrote some tunes too – and the record features lots of his own great guitar – really kind of weird and trippy, and played in a style that's deft, but kind of weirdly sonic too! Half the tunes are covers of the most tripped-out psych numbers of the time, and the rest are great originals – with vocals that are right on the money, but still take second stage to the great guitar. Titles include "Pot Luck", "Non Stop", "Kicks", "Arriba", "Sunshine Superman", "Over Under Sideways Down", and "Sunset & Clark". LP, Vinyl record album

Dead KennedysFresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables (180 gram pressing with poster & prints) ... LP
Cherry Red (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... On June 1, 2015
Landmark work from The Dead Kennedys – and maybe still one of the greatest punk records to ever come from the American scene! There's so much here that so many other records are missing – razor-sharp instrumentation, a great sense of pacing, and most importantly, a biting wit that always keeps the whole thing from ever lapsing into any sort of over-serious cliches! Yet unlike their LA contemporaries, the group were also never ones to just lay into the jokes – as the political commentary here is especially pointed, and nearly every single song is a blistering attack on late 70s California mores and national obsessions. Every track's a gem – and titles include "Kill The Poor", "Forward To Death", "Let's Lynch The Landlord", "Your Emotions", "Holiday In Cambodia", "California Uber Alles", and "Stealing People's Mail" – plus a killer cover of "Viva Las Vegas". LP, Vinyl record album

Big StarLive In Memphis ... CD
Omnivore, 1994. New Copy ... $9.99 16.98
The mid 90s Big Star revival – captured live at the New Daisy Theatre, on Beale Street – and the only professionally captured Big Star live performance of any era! This era of Big Star is led by group founders Alex Chilton and Jody Stephens, backed by Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow of avowed Big Star devotees The Posies, and the younger guns more than capably help to bring fresh, exciting life to the catalog and covers. It's anything but a nostalgia trip! These songs were as timeless and relevant in 1994 as they were 2 decades earlier AND 2 decades later – the band's reputation hasn't grown so great over the years by accident – they're really that great! The set includes most of band's most beloved tunes and a cool crop of covers, including "In The Street", "Don't Lie To Me", "Way Out West", "Jesus Christ", "Baby Strange", "September Gurls", Thank You Friends", "For You", "I Am The Cosmos", "The Ballad Of El Goodo", "Til The End Of The Day", "When My Baby's Beside Me and more.

BreakdownsRock N Roller Skates ... CD
Rum Bar, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99
These guys don't take the British flag on the cover lightly – as they come across with this wonderful style that's filled with all the best Brit references from The Who through The Jam, and onwards! The sound has the sharpness of the best mod work from years back – but it's also not mod-revival at all, as it's got a slightly brasher, bolder vibe – with no intentional retro elements in the music, just a great back-to-basics vibe that's filled with short, sharp guitar lines, and loads of wonderful hooks throughout. Titles include "UK Youth", "Off The Record", "Sweet Pamela Jayne", "Mainline Waiting", "Stick Em Up Buddy", and "It's Only Love". CD

Creedence Clearwater RevivalWilly & The Poor Boys ... LP
Fantasy, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
It's hard to get any more classic than this for Creedence Clearwater Revival – as this legendary late 60s album is definitely the place where it all comes together! The pairing of John Fogerty's lead guitar and the scratching rhythm guitar of brother Tom really sounds wonderful here – driven on by tight bass and drums, but always with this rootsy edge that stretches from the Bay Area scene way down to the bayou! Titles include the classic "Down On The Corner" and a great version of "The Midnight Special" – plus "It Came Out Of The Sky", "Side Of The Road", "Effigy", "Don't Look Now", and "Fortunate Son".

DeathSpiritual Mental Physical – Original Reel-To-Reel Demo Recordings 1974-1976 ... LP
Drag City, 1974/1975/1976. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
A fresh discovery from pre-punk Motor City firebrands Death – who were not only pioneers of African American punk rock, they also pre-figured some best adrenaline-fueled underground rock of the next decade and more! Spiritual Mental Figures features ten raw demos from 1974-1976 – seven of which were recorded on a two-track reel-to-reel stereo recorder – and it's exciting, pummeling, incendiary stuff! A worthy addition to Death revival campaign that began with Drag City's essential release of their For The Whole World To See album. Get it! Includes "Views", "The Masks", "Change", "World Of Tomorrow", "The Storm Within", "Dannis On The Motor City Drums" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

DinAuthenticity (includes bonus CD) ... LP
Din Jam, 2013. Sealed ... $7.99
The long-overdue return of Din – a group missing from this planet for a quarter of a century – recently reformed and revived from the ashes of their California roots! The record's got a relatively vintage feel – from the cloud-swirling production on the guitars, to the sense of static and crackle on the vocals, to the lavish Independent Projects packaging of the limited vinyl-only release – but it's also clear that these guys have a lot more to offer than "din", and have really honed their craft over the years. Tunes are well-penned, with a sense of the old mixed with optimism of their revival – on titles that include "Winning", "Never Again", "Going Down", "Words From Jack", "Voodoo Hotel", and "If". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited, numbered pressing of 500 copies – done by Bruce Licher/Independent Projects.)

English BeatComplete Studio Recordings (I Just Can't Stop It/Wha'ppen/Special Beat Service/Dub Album) (4CD box set) ... CD
Edsel (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $23.99
An amazing document of one of the grooviest groups to emerge from the UK at the start of the 80s – not just their three full albums, but almost as much rare bonus material as well! The English Beat came a bit later than the initial wave of Two Tone ska revival groups – and they came with a difference, too – a bit more soul, and a slightly more contemporary approach to their music – one that pushed Jamaican roots into mod London modes – particularly the best sorts that were bubbling up in the post-punk generation! The group really helped revive some warmer sounds in British music – yet without just copying older modes from the other side of the Atlantic, too – and these three great albums definitely went onto set a fire in a host of other groups as well – the first wave of some surprisingly soulful moments from the UK in the 80s. The box set features the full albums I Just Can't Stop It, Wha'ppen, and Special Beat Service – plus a hube bonus album that features 10 tracks from singles and 45s, plus 7 more dub tracks as well!

English BeatI Just Can't Stop It ... CD
London/Go Feet, 1980. Used ... $1.99
The first album from The English Beat – and not only is it one of the most essential of the English ska revival era of the late 70s and early 80s – it's one the most enduring records of 1980 in any genre! The English Beat, like the best of their peers, used ska and rocksteady inspiration to fuel their own contemporary UK sound – and it sounds great to this day! The rhythms and tighter and punchier here than on later records, with some pop, mod and soul lacing their songwriting and vocals, too. A landmark! Includes "Mirror In The Bathroom", "Hands Off. . .She's Mine", "Twist & Crawl", "Big Shot", "Best Friend", "Jackpot" and more. CD

English BeatWha'ppen ... CD
Go Feet/London, 1981. Used ... $3.99
One of best ever albums by The English Beat – one that cemented their status as one of the most creative groups to come out of the ska revival scene! Wha'ppen has lots of fresh instrumentation and experimentation – but that's in service of some tight, insistent songcraft – and they never ever bury their their Caribbean influences. There's a bit more Afro Beat-inspired rhythms and some atmospheric underground pop touches, but it's still get plenty of the Jamaican style we loved about their earlier work, too – on a record that didn't get the acclaim it deserved at the time! Titles include "Monkey Murders", "I Am Your Flag", "Walk Away", "Get A Job", "The Limits We Set", "Dream Home In NZ", and "Drowning". CD

Roky EricksonEvil One (Plus One) ... CD
Sympathy For The Record Industry, 1981. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
Roky Erickson's fantastic early 80s solo material – tracks that were produced by Creedence Clearwater Revival's Stu Cook – with some of the most straight-forward and accessible rockers in Roky's canon, but it's still sporting his trademark eccentricity! Given his mythical personal history, you can easy describe Roky Erickson as "having demons" – but as you'll hear, he's also got two-headed dogs, vampires, zombies, fire demons, ghosts and Lucifer himself – just on this one record! The tracks have an odd release history – having been recorded in the late 70s, but not released until 1980 in the UK on the Five Symbols record, and in '81 as The Evil One LP, with an altered tracklist. This definitive Light In The Attic version gathers up all 15 amazing tracks from the Stu Cook sessions from '77-'79. Includes the legendary "Two Headed Dog" and many more tunes that are just as incredible! Titles include "I Walked With A Zombie", "Night Of The Vampire", "It's A Cold Night For Alligators", "Mine Mine Mind", "I Think Of Demons", "Creature With The Atom Brain", "Bloody Hammer", "Don't Shake Me Lucifer", "If You Have Ghosts" and more. Contains a second disc of the Modern Humas Show from August 20th 1979 KSJO Radio. CD

Caroline, 1984. Used ... $5.99
The last of the "revival" King Crimson from the early 80s – featuring the lineup that included Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, Bill Bruford, and Tony Levin. The style is fairly academic, but Belew's presence still gives the record a bit of heart – something that Fripp had trouble doing on his own, even after all these years. Titles include "Dig Me", "Industry", "Lark's Tongue In Aspic Part 3", "Three Of a Perfect Pair", and "Sleepless". CD

Post Industrial NoiseOffical Anthology (180 gram colored vinyl) ... LP
Medical, 1983. New Copy ... $18.99
Unjustly obscure post punk synth rock by Post Industrial Noise – an Ohio trio that put out one flexidisc and one cassette in the early 80s before disbanding and reorganizing later as Near Paris! The sound isn't really all that noisy in the caustic sense of the word – but there is a chilly sense of menace. It's really a strong batch if minimalist guitar, drums and synth – and a yet another amazing reminder of what a fertile underground rock engine the the state of Ohio was in the 70s and 80s! Includes "Sketch", "Survivalist", "Outside Reality", "Compartment Life", "Cota City Salsa", "Think", "Symphony Of A Mind", "Prelude" and "Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album

Crunchy mid 70s glam pop from Rats – junkshop rockers in the vein of Slade, Gary Glitter and Showaddywaddy – but with a huge dollop of T Rex thrown in for good measure! (Who doesn't need a little T Rex in their glam pop formula, right?) Roaring, rock guitar ear candy for fans who couldn't get enough from the Boobs compilation and other glam pop revivalist ventures! Tracks include "Turtle Dove", "LA Highway", "Nose Job", "Rolling Railroad Wagon", "Queen", "Very Small Child", "Oxford Donna", "Main Horse Cowboy" and "Child He Die". CD

✨✧ Steely DanGaucho ... LP
MCA, 1980. Sealed ... $34.99
The last album in the classic run of Steely Dan – the final taste we'd have of the group until their surprising revival in the 90s! Gaucho picks up beautifully where Aja left off – warmly produced with a deep undercurrent of jazz, but perhaps a bit more down to earth feel at times too – not in the music, which is still up there in the heavens, but in some of the subject matter of the tunes, which almost takes us back to Royal Scam territory. Donald Fagan's vocals are wonderful throughout – a sound for which there's no referent or real description – and the balance in the instrumentation is near perfect on tunes that include "Babylon Sisters", "Hey Nineteen", "Time Out Of Mind", "My Rival", "Glamour Profession", and "Gaucho". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed early pressing – MCA 6102 – no barcode on back cover, and even has an old Downtown Records price code sticker on front!)
